Summertime, and the living is anything but easy for me. It’s a hundred and ten in the shade, and my already over-complicated life just got even more complicated, thanks to my author Lois Winston, who’s plunged me into yet another murder investigation.
You’d think she’d give me a bit of a reprieve since my extremely difficult communist mother-in-law Lucille Pollack is in a rehab center recovering from a minor stroke. But no, at least half the center’s staff overhears Lucille threaten to strangle her roommate. Less than twenty-four hours later the woman is found dead in her bed—and not from natural causes.
Of course Lucille becomes the prime suspect in the roommate’s murder. I know Lucille is all bluster and no action, but the cops aren’t willing to take my word for it. And no matter how much easier my life would be without her living under my roof, my conscience won’t allow me to look the other way while they lock her up for a crime she didn’t commit.
You can read all about the mayhem Lois gets me into in Revenge of the Crafty Corpse, which is on sale throughout the month of August on Amazon for only .99 cents. Read it in the comfort of your air-conditioned house or while sipping an ice tea while relaxing on vacation. That way at least one of us will enjoy the summer.
Revenge of the Crafty Corpse
Anastasia Pollack’s dead louse of a spouse has left her with more bills than you can shake a crochet hook at. Teaching craft classes at her mother-in-law’s assisted living center seems like an easy way to supplement her meager income. But when Lyndella Wegner—a 98-year-old know-it-all with a penchant for ruffles and lace—turns up dead, Anastasia’s cantankerous mother-in-law becomes the prime suspect in her murder. Upon discovering that Lyndella’s scandalous craft projects—and her scandalous behavior—made her plenty of enemies, Anastasia sets out to find the real killer before her mother-in-law ends up behind bars.
